This tastefully customized 1970 Chevrolet C10 Fleetside ½-ton short-bed pickup has all the most popular components of 1967-1972 Chevy C10 pickups: short bed, Fleetside, full-width rear window, factory trim, rust-free body, V-8 engine, and automatic transmission. The engine and transmission have been upgraded to a newer LT1 combination along with power steering, disc brakes, and 17-inch custom wheels and low-profile tires. The seller says the restoration/modification work was completed in 2020. The engine in this C10 is reported to be an LT1 350-cu.in. OHV V-8 taken from a 1994 Pontiac Trans Am and has only 5,000 miles on it. The four-speed automatic transmission from the same car now resides in the C10, and “shift very nicely.” The engine/transmission upgrade was performed in 2020. Besides easy fuel-injection cold starts, “The truck pulls down the road with excellent power and sounds incredible.” The truck uses the Trans Am ECU and OBD port for tuning and any troubleshooting. A new gas tank was part of the recent powertrain upgrade, as well. No leaks or weeps from either the engine or transmission. This truck was a largely original rust-free body before the custom metallic blue was applied. He notes that some very minor surface corrosion can be seen under the bed in the undercarriage photos and that there is some indication of use in the bed. The truck has custom front and rear rolled pans in place of the much-bulkier factory bumpers. The paint condition as “excellent,” with no blemishes, and “excellent” glass and weatherstripping, with no known leaks. The bench seat has been reupholstered in tan cloth with surrounding brown vinyl, and the carpet, also brown, is described as “new,”. The interior is kept cool thanks to a Vintage Air A/C unit. The heater works and all the gauges function correctly, except for the factory tachometer. The custom steering wheel has a wooden rim. The suspension has been lowered slightly and the photos appear to show a nice stance that backs the claim. The shocks and bushings are aftermarket items, but a few of the poly bushings show some cracking and the shocks are coming due for replacement. The Falken tires, sized 235/50R17 in front and 275/50R17 in the rear, have “very good” remaining tread life, per the seller, but he isn’t sure of their age. The tires are mounted on polished American Racing Torq Thrust wheels. The front brakes are power discs, and the rears are drum brakes that being in “very good” condition. The power steering exhibits no leaks.
